Ferenc Loschán is a Hungarian private collector, who lives in Olasz - a small village which is about 15 minutes' drive from Pécs. If you ever think about visiting the 2010 European Capital of Culture, make sure to organize a trip to his place.
The Matra Museum is located in Romorantin, France. You'll see there all the cars, that made MATRA (Mecanique-Aviation-Traction) history and particularly most of the race cars and engines. In 1965, Jean-Luc Lagardere, chairman of Matra Sport, began the history of Matra in Motorsport, ten years later it had won LeMans three times, was F1 champion with J. Stewart, three times European F2 champion and eventually Matra cars had won 133 races. The story ended in 1982 with the V12 engine on a Ligier and the stillborn V6 turbo F1 project.
If you’re in the mood for rare and unique Porsche classics, you don’t necesseraly need to visit Porsche’s own high-tech museum in Stuttgart. Well worth visiting is Helmut Pfeifhofer’s private collection in the picturesque Austrian town of Gmünd, once the production hub for the first 52 Porsche 356 Coupés and Cabriolets.
We were amazed to find aluminium and wood models of the early 356, not to mention the 910/S Bergspyder and the Formel Super V racecar. A VW Typ 87 Kommandeurwagen and a Porsche 597 Jagdwagen are nice additions to this exceptional collection of about 20 cars.
